Mamavation Monday! Goal #2 MET!!!!

Yes! I have hit my second milestone/goal!

I'm down 10.5lbs since applying to be a Mamavation Mom! I feel SO INCREDIBLY blessed to be a part of an AWESOME support group of women who work towards disease prevention...including obesity. I feel like some days I am fighting an uphill battle with my thyroid issues and stress...but I am just thrilled to see the scale slowly creeping downward. Determination, coupled with an awesome support team, has helped me through some seriously difficult days lately.

We learned a ton about indoor air quality this week, and I'd encourage you to read my Mamavation blog post, then check out this week's Mamavation TV show. AWESOME info on how to rid your home of toxic air!

Thank you for following me, I am honored to be a part of this adventure!

Mamavation Mom Week 4. BLAH.

I'm gonna whine for a second then move on. So just be warned.

I thought I was doing so well this week. Then I shot a wedding Saturday. I was up at 6:30am and didn't go to bed until 2:30am. And I didn't drink enough water. Sunday AM I woke up so bloated, it was like I was 9 months pregnant again. Lesson learned. Being dehydrated makes you take on water like the Titanic.

Yep. I was up four pounds. I was ticked. Discouraged. Could have gone into a downward spiral. But I didn't.

Thankfully, I talked to Leah, with Mamavation and she encouraged me to drink a ton of water and keep moving. And I have...and I'm back down 3 lbs. since I weighed yesterday morning. So I am back on track headed in the right direction.

I've also learned a TON about detoxing my (and my family's) personal care. Read about what I learned this week in this post.

I am so blessed to be on this journey. I realize it's not just about weight loss, but about total health in every area of our lives.

Blessings to you and yours!

Mamavation Monday - Week 3 Post

Guys, this week has been amazing. I am THRILLED to announce I have lost 8lbs and 7.5 inches off of my body! 

Now, this may not sound like a lot to you, but I've been on a gaining streak for the past few years, so to FINALLY be heading in the opposite direction is HUGE for me. I am SO proud of the changes taking place not only in my body, but in my mind and emotions as well. I'm learning to control my emotional eating. It is not easy...quite the contrary, it's SO incredibly hard. But SO worth it. I'm seeing a huge spike in my energy, my mental clarity, and my ability to cope with major stresses in my life.

So I am PROUD to be able to post this sticker to my blog: 

This week we learned about detoxing the cleaners in our home and I would love if you checked back later in the week for some reviews on these products that make our home a MUCH safer environment. Here's my weekly Mamavation Mom Blog Post where you can read even more about my transformation this week.

And if you missed Mamavation TV last night, you can find more information here.

I'm excited to have you following my progress! Please keep checking back for more exciting changes!
